NetRexx 3.04 RC1 released

rvjansen
NetRexx 3.04 Release Candidate 1 has just been pushed to http://netrexx.org 

This release has the following changes:

- a jsr 199 compliant way of calling the java compiler
    - the .java source is now only stored on disk when option -keepasjava is specified
- an automatic search for a compiler on the classpath
- integration of Pipes for NetRexx (available in the NetRexxF.jar file)
- a new level of (4.4.2) of the eclipse java compiler (available in the NetRexxF.jar file)
- a less verbose startup message when the translator is started without options
  - NetRexxC option list now requires "-help"
- new: NETREXX-120, option -javac indicates a preference for the javac compiler
- new: NETREXX-120, option -ecj indicates a preference for the ecj compiler
- new: the tools section now has support for the vim and nano editors
- NetRexx now requires JVM 1.6 to build and run the translator
- new: NETREXX-69, "do binary” block support
- a fix for NETREXX-117, NPE in jsr223
- a fix for NETREXX-116, a new 'returnobject' option to return a returncode from a jsr223 script
- a fix for NETREXX-114: fixes z/OS compatibility (broken in 3.03)
- new: NETREXX-109, a parallel processing api
- new: NETREXX-100, a list processing api
- a fix for NETREXX-92, enabling negative values in interface classes
- a fix for NETREXX-115, enabling trivial subclassing of some collection classes in java 8 and up
- new: NETREXX-119, toByteArray() method on type Rexx
- a fix for NETREXX-118, error in jsr223 engine
- a fix for NETREXX-108, static and default methods in interface classes

I would like to ask you to incorporate this new release candidate into your work processes and report back to the development team on your experience. There are no known stopping errors in this release candidate, and its compile performance is better than previous versions. This release candidate lacks the Pipes for NetRexx documentation, which is still being worked upon. 

The project team likes to thank Kermit Kiser for his work on this release and his dedication to the NetRexx language.

best regards,

René Jansen.

Hi Jason,

thanks for noticing this, it must have been in there for quite some time. I have taken it, and one other instance, out of the document.

best regards,

René.

René --

One of the change points is a bit misleading. The old translator finds a Java compiler that is on the classpath. The new translator also finds compilers that are NOT on the classpath if one cannot be found via the classpath; for example in the directory the translator is loaded from or in any directory associated with the current JVM. That may reduce installation issues due to "Java compiler not found".

What am I doing wrong?  I downloaded and unzipped 3.04 RC1 (to OS X) but when I run

java -jar lib/NetRexxF.jar 

I get:

Re: NetRexx 3.04 RC1 released

Kermit Kiser
I think René has some experience with OS-X. He may have some better ideas. The only thing I can think of is that your personal environment might be running a different version of Java that has an old NetRexx copy in an ext directory.

One of the change points is a bit misleading. The old translator finds a Java compiler that is on the classpath. The new translator also finds compilers that are NOT on the classpath if one cannot be found via the classpath; for example in the directory the translator is loaded from or in any directory associated with the current JVM. That may reduce installation issues due to "Java compiler not found".

Hi Walter,

I regularly ‘install’ NetRexx by just 

sftp some.work.host
put NetRexxC.jar

There will be an installer with the GA version, if Tom comes around to making that for us.

best regards,

René.

Hi Alan,

curious indeed. FIrst thing I would check is if your home directory does not have a .profile or .bash_profile or .bashrc that does things you don’t want.
I see root uses sh (and must have its own environment).

$PATH can of course have a ‘java’ script that sets CLASSPATH.

If you can please do a:

java -verbose -jar NetRexxF.jar

you can examine the paths from where the classes are loaded.

Please let us know!

best regards,

René.

Re: NetRexx 3.04 RC1 released

Thanks René.

After some digging I found a copy of NetRexxC.jar (full disclosure - a symlink) in ~/Library/Java/Extensions. Removing that changes the behaviour.

Now I can do spiffy stuff like this:

Re: NetRexx 3.04 RC1 released

In reply to this post by rvjansen
René --

I hate to be nit-picky but I see two misstatements in the release notes:

1) The fix for issue #108 was released in 3.03RC2 last year.

2) Java source is saved on disk by the 3.04 translator if options -keep or -keepasjava
are specified just as in release 3.03 of NetRexx. However NetRexx 3.04 does not
write java to disk otherwise since it is no longer required in order to produce class files.
